Train smashes into home in Sweden after cleaning lady allegedly stole it for joy ride

A cleaner stole an empty commuter train from a depot Tuesday and drove it to a suburb of Stockholm where it derailed and slammed into an apartment building, officials said.

The woman was seriously injured in the early-morning crash and was flown to a Stockholm hospital, police spokesman Lars Bystrom said. No one else was injured.

Bystrom said the woman was arrested on suspicion of endangering the public.

Tomas Hedenius, a spokesman for train operator Arriva, said the woman, born in 1990, stole the four-car train at a depot outside Stockholm.

She then drove it about a mile to the end station on the railway line, where it jumped off the tracks, careered for about 30 yards and crashed into a three-story building.

4. You not thinking things through when you steal a train

Where is it going to go? Down the track, it's not like the authorities don't know where that track goes.

6. Good grief, the Swedes are certainly careful...

Bystrom said the woman was arrested on suspicion of endangering the public.

They suspect it, they're not quite sure....????
